“I’ve finally become a stand-up comedian at 66 years of age”
This very funny play follows the lives of Mary Black, Mary Brown, Mary Green, Mary White, Mary Grey and Mary Golden. It tells of the comics and catechism they read in the 1950s. It tells of their search for Mr. Wonderful in the 1960s and 70s – bringing great hope to their lonely hearts. Failing to meet Mr. Wonderful, they eventually settle for Mr. Ordinary and begin married life. Throughout the following decades the Marys discuss the true realities of married life, rearing babies, children and teenagers.
Eventually the six Marys realise that you make your own dreams come true. The theme is universal.
This journey of self-discovery is interspersed with well-known hit songs from the various eras, sung by Catherine Gallagher.
